    ^Yes. If/when I end up needing eyeglasses, I'll go for some Moscots.

    Anyway, I'm still hunting for good, slim OCBD's. I managed to kop a plum stripe BoO from the Gilt sale, but still need some good solid-colored shirts. I recently ordered a Kent Wang x Thick as Thieves, but I'm not sure if I like the way it fits.

    KW x TaT:

    BoO (just for reference, as what I'd consider perfect fit):

    Fit notwithstanding, do the mitered cuffs and lack of front placket make the KW x TaT shirt dressier?


    The BoO is far, far superior however the KWxTaT is much dressier. Tuck it in, put on a blazer and see how you like the KWxTaT then, or post a picture so we can help you too. It would make an excellent dress shirt.

    ^ +1 This BOO obsession is completely nuts. Of course I think that cuz they don't fit me worth a damn. [​IMG]
    I thought so too until I tried them on and they fit 100x better than anything else I own. Plus with discounts (not to mention the $30 I save on alteration fees) they really aren't that expensive.

    I'm thinking about selling these glasses on eBay since I never wear them and need some cash. I just never thought they really fit my face shape - should I keep them or sell them? Sorry for the dirty mirror. [​IMG]

    I like white faces, because they are rarer, more easy on the eyes and work with just about anything (particularly well with brown straps).

    I'm planning on picking up some navy Topsiders for summer wear. Should I get the perforated or non-perforated version? (I have no other pairs of boat shoes).

    I'd say get the non-perforated version first

    Thanks, that's what I was leaning toward. I was just curious if veteran Topsider wearers would tell me that there was a notable comfort difference in warm weather.

    Second one; if I'm paying that much for a shirt I want it to have a little swagger.

    ^ Looks like a cross between CP Achilles and Stan Smiths.
